As an experiment, I made some modifications to the built in error dialog box function (by typing edit errordlg ) and saved it under the same name. If I then call the errordlg function from a script, my changes appear as the were intended. However, if I compile the script and run it as an executable, the default appearance of the dialog box is restored. Out of curiosity, why is this so?

It's using the one built-into and embedded in the MCR installer, not the one you modified. If you put the file into the same folder as your main executable, then I think it should use that in preference to the default one, both in your MATLAB and your target user who is using MCR.

Thanks for your reply, what you say seems indeed reasonable. I will give it a try as my experiment does have an underlying purpose.
